Dog Obedience Training Santa Monica California

Michael has been involved in training and raising dogs since 1983.  His first dog, Megan, was a pregnant rescue that sought refuge inside a police patrol car during a winter night in Chicago.  His family thought it was inconceivable to turn her into the pound so they kept her.

Over the years, Michael has had six different dogs and all have been family pets.  The training was never professional, but with love and consistently they had great pets.  In 2010, Michael decided to help foster a pup from the Guide Dogs of America which exposed him to better methodologies in dog training.

With his acquisition of his English Lab pup in early 2016, he decided to seek a more formalized training method.  Michael then came to learn about the tremendous training results that Off Leash K9 Training was getting and decided that it would work well for him and his pup, Oso!

Michael was so blown away by the results from Off Leash K9 Training, he then decided to join their ranks as a full-time trainer!  If you are looking at making your dog confident, obedient and off leash, contact Michael today!

OLK9 specializes in E-collar with Marker training, to gain amazing obedience from your dog. . There are a bunch of major misconceptions with e-collar training (see FAQ). E-collar training is more about using a ball as a reward than it is about using the e-collar.

Off-Leash K9 Training is comprised of off leash dog trainers with experience and training ranging from the US Marine Corps, DOD, US Secret Service and private sector experience! Guaranteed 100% Obedience with Off-Leash/Loose Leash control. Your dog will be trained to have the same level of obedience as most police/military working dogs!

What we enjoy most is seeing dogs that have spent their whole life on a leash, now being 100% Obedient and Off-Leash! We thrive in seeing the joy in both the dogs’ and their owners’ faces when they have mastered a new command without the restriction of a leash.
